LOCAL school kids from the north inner city have created a colourful, striking collage to help Jervis Shopping Centre celebrate its 21st birthday.

Jervis initiated the project so the shopping centre could engage with local community groups and create involvement in its birthday bash.

Bradóg Youth Services in Dominick Place came up with the idea of working with children from local schools to design a mural that would be displayed in Jervis Shopping Centre main mall over the birthday celebrations.

The 7ft tall mural was created over a two-day workshop in Bradóg Youth Services Community Centre and was facilitated by local artist Caitriona McGowan.

The finished piece is inspired by the iconic centre’s significant birthday and set against the backdrop of the Dublin skyline. And Centre Manager, Derek McDonnell, says it really is a work of art.

“We were delighted to work with Bradóg Youth Services on the design of the mural,” he added.

“The student’s involvement and enthusiasm for this project has been outstanding and their work is truly wonderful. We’re delighted to be able to showcase their artwork in the centre for everyone to enjoy.”
